In 1887, the German physicist Heinrich Hertz discovered radio waves.
While the first practical use of this discovery was communication, there were also some who realized that radio waves could serve another purpose.
It was possible to use these radio waves to detect objects at a distance. It was something that revolutionized warfare and weather forecasting and might revolutionize consumer technology.
